Magnetic Board for Team Standings

Hello Everyone
This week I made a project for my son.  He is a total sports nut and is into collecting the new plastic team helmets.  He has the NFL, NHL and brought home the MLB last night.  So, what are you suppose to do with these helments?  I guess you display them in accordance with the current standings. 

I was over at a friend's house and her son had the MLB helmets too.  I asked her what he does with them and she said, I am not sure, but I am going to get a magnetic board, glue a magnetic to the helmet and let him display them.  BRILLANT!  I loved the idea and ran to Michael's for magnetic, found the board I wanted at Target and headed home to work on today's project.

I chose to start with NHL since we are entering play-off time.  I first tried to adhere the magnetic to the helmet with Zip Dry glue (love this for craft projects).  It did not work very well with the plastic.  Next I tried my Glue Dots and those didn't work either.  Lastly, I pulled out the oldie, but goodie glue gun.  That seemed to do the trick.  I glued te magnetic to the inside of the helment.

Arranged them per the standings and whaa-laa done.  I think he is going to be so happy with this.

Remember, I love comments,so let me know what you think and I will be back next week with another craft project!

P.S.  I also tried it with hs NFL and MLB helments
